It's Been Too Long

Work, attention to family and friends, and life in general can overwhelm our time...and that's not all bad. Lately a spate of life things has kept us from our weekly gatherings. It was good to get together last night for a game of Black Powder and just have a good time. I was not able to make it out to Recruits in Lee's Summit, Mo this year, so it was good to hear some stories and all about the growing success of the Fistful of Lead and Wiley Games.  Thanks to Brett, Doug, Jaye, Marshall, and Scott for making the trip last night.

Little Bighorn 7th Cav

A few posts ago I mentioned I would soon begin working on some Little Bighorn characters to be used with the Baron's  Fistful of Lead skirmish rules. I'm quite impressed with my ability to get all of the 7th minis finished in about 6 weeks. This batch includes 14 mounted (I'm using a half dozen Foundry ACW troopers until a few more packs of the 7th collection arrive from Foundry) and 16 dismounted troopers to go with 9 I had previously painted. These totals will probably amount to more than we will ever need, especially since the Native Americans need to outnumber the cavalry by at least 2 to 1. Next, the the Cheyenne and Lakota.
